Do you or don’t you? Over here in UK’land there are a couple of magazines aimed specifically at writers.

I took part in the 2013 A to Z Challenge and whilst I’m NOT participating this time around I thought I’d remind you of this blogging extravaganza in case you were interested. I thoroughly enjoyed last year’s competition, but I know that I don’t have the time to edit my book and take part again this […]

This is a serious question. I’m serious. Stop laughing at the back. I saw some footage recently of some event going on in Trafalgar Square and NO-ONE was just watching. Everyone held their phone in the air recording the event. There could have been a few reasons for this: They wanted to review it later […]


Whilst conducting *Research* you find all sorts of interesting things. When I talk about *Research* I mean I was procrastinating reading through the BBC website. I find them a great source of interesting information and not remotely wasting valuable writing time. Okay, maybe a little. Anyway, my school years saw the birth of the Space […]
